I’ve been a fan of rhythm & blues and jazz musician Louis Jordan since his records were played for me by my record store co-workers when I was in my early twenties. Songs like Caledonia, Beware, Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Cryin’ and Choo Choo Ch’ Boogie were some of the songs on a double LP collection that was on heavy rotation in our store. Jordon was known as the King of the Jukebox in the 1940s, and had a string of hits that crossed over to to both black and white audiences. Here is one of my very favorite Louis Jordon songs: Five Guys Named Moe.
1. Moe Howard. Stooge
2. Moe Szyslak. Bartender
3. Mo Ostin. Artist-friendly Record Exec and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer
4. Moe Greene. Dead Mobster
Mo(ses). Religious leader, lawgiver and prophet
